Top Two Tuesday: my third

Top Two Beauty Secrets

I thought about what I would say for this one. And then I remembered, I take great pride in my hair and spend money regularly on my hair.
So here are my two tips.

1. The Cut/Color: Take the time and money regularly for a good hair cut. I also get mine highlighted regularly. But whatever you do, whether you just get a cut or have color done as well, do it regularly.
One of my favorite days happens once a month. It is the day I get my hair done. Seriously, I feel so much better about myself because my highlights are done again. While it may seem superficial, I don't care.
As a side note, I also budget this expense into my monthly budget breakdown. I also have been going to my hair stylist for 11 years. I've cried on more than one occasion about the fact that I'm moving away from her.

While this may seem a bit extreme, I happen to be a firm believer in keeping your stylist the same person.

Do not be a shop hopper.

They know what you want and also know the texture of your hair, what color it will take and won't take, etc.

2. The Hair Product: I know that there are lots of schools of thought out there on whether you should use good hair product or whether you shouldn't. The argument is "Does it make a difference?" I think it does. And I also think it doesn't. For my hair pre-blow dry, I use cheap shampoo and conditioner most of the time. I think the key is to change it up regularly. The only thing I do consistently is buy the same scalp shampoo.


I know I can't believe I let it leak I use it but I do. I use Johnny B shampoo paste and it is amazing. Seriously, twice a week and it makes a huge difference, plus it smells GREAT!

I use a different kind of shampoo/conditioner every third time I buy it.

But product, I use post blow dry, I use the real deal. I am obsessed with the Big Sexy Hair Product line. I love their flat iron spray, hair spray and leave in conditioner. It makes my blond hair look great!

(No I didn't get paid for this post by the way.)

So there you have it. I love my hair!

Happy Tuesday!!

A quality stylist is the key to my hair. Both she and I cried when I told her I was moving. Yes, I'm that attached.

Your hair is really cute. I love my stylist too and even though I believe her salon is overpriced, neither L or I will go elsewhere. I am ridiculously overdue right now. Like terribly, embarrassingly bad. But I'm getting a cut on Sunday and I am almost as excited about that as finding out the gender of my baby on Thursday. So I hear ya.

Your hair is gorgous, I'm very jealous!! I usually go to Cost Cuts or Supercuts and ask for a trim, no layers, no nothing. My hair is totes boring.
